My xbox 360 dose not load anything

It doesnt load anything from the hard drive or from the disc? Do you hear the disc spinning? Are your cables properly connected and do you have the television set to the proper tv input? Usually if its the hard drive it will or should reformat itself especially if connected to the internet via wireless or the cat5 cable. Many of the early xbox 360's used to heat up really bad and you would get the red ring of death. There is a fix for that overheat issue though.

Dont use the switch when your game is saving or anything is downloading because you could corrupt the saved game/download (I don't think it'll let you turn it off from the front button when it's writing to the hard drive- the switch in the back actually cuts off the power.).

Take care.

As flashing red light

Flashing red light indicates a hard ware problem.

In MOST cases it's a problem with the PS3 motherboard. You can try booting without the hard drive inside, but it's rarely the cause.

I try to my console on and it does turns on for a second and then shuts itself off and blinks red. its not hot or anything and idk whats wrong with it. my only controller was dead could that be the...

blinkin red light usually means hardware failer the only 2 easy tricks to try that wont void your warrenty is
#1 remove the hard drive and boot it up without it and see if it boots and says no hard drive then shut it down and plug the hard drive back in if it works now then was just a drive error if it goes back to blinkin you have a bad drive.

#2 the fan test that also seems to clear any over heating or other blinkin light problems --- turn the ps32.gif off for 40 seconds by the switch on the back then hold down the eject button and flip the power switch back on while still holding the eject button and see if that clears it.

Cds will not play after Red Ring of Death

If theirs two lights means its overheating and you need to cool it down if its 4 its many things and if the disc drive doesn't read anything and by the sound of it its been played a lot its probably the disc drive could have gotten shot so first of does the disc driver even spin the disc if so then is the laser that probably went to hell and then you'll probably have to replace the disc drive if you do make sure its the same brand as your current one for example if its a hitachi then make sure you replace it with a hitachi disc drive.

The red light on my ps3 is blinking and wont stay on

Turn off the ps3. Try reseating the hard drive. Take the cables off and then hook them back up. After this turn the ps3 back on and see if the blinking red light goes away. If it doesn't then try another hard drive in the system. If the blinking light goes away then you know you have a bad hard drive. If the blinking light does not go away then you know either the power supply or main board is bad.

Red ring of death

It means "general hardware failure", so it could be any number of things. Its like a check engine light except when it comes on , it means something doesnt work. The only way to fix it is to send it off to xbox. Call 18004MYXBOX and they will send you a prepaid shipping label and a box and will get it back to you within a few weeks. Your xbox should be covered under microsoft's warranty so it shouldnt cost you anything. Removing the hard drive wont fix anything because the hard drive isnt needed for the xbox to operate, so if it failed the xbox would be fine but wouldnt be able to retrieve the data off it.
